In recent years, Newark, New Jersey, the state's largest city, has become a major insurance center and home to numerous Fortune 500 companies in such diverse industries as health care, telecommunications, and utilities. Epstein Becker Green's Newark office has experienced similar growth, increasing its attorney complement from six to 35 in just the past 10 years, and expanding its practice to meet the needs of regional companies, as well as those of multi-cited domestic and international clients.
Strategically located within minutes of New York City, and easily accessible to the nation's capital, the Newark office works closely with the firm's New York and Washington, DC, offices, as well as with our other offices across the country, to serve national clients in a broad spectrum of industries, including health care, finance, pharmaceuticals, service, and manufacturing.
Our Newark attorneys, a number of whom have been nationally recognized by both peer and business organizations, including Chambers USA, advise and represent Fortune 100 and other companies in the firm's national practice areas: Labor and Employment, Health Care and Life Sciences, Corporate Services, Litigation, and Employee Benefits. Clients also rely on members of our Newark office for their extensive experience in ERISA and employee benefits, intellectual property, complex commercial litigation, corporate compliance, and federal and state environmental law.
Our Newark office includes several former government officials, including a former Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey and a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Some members of the Newark Office are certified mediators and approved arbitrators, others have served as adjunct law school professors, and many are sought-after lecturers. Our Newark office is also home to two founding members of Epstein Becker Green's popular Women's Initiative, an innovative networking and career development program for professional women.
All of our Newark attorneys live in the region and many are actively involved in local civic and philanthropic endeavors, from serving as trustees of the Newark School of Arts and the Simpson Baber Foundation for the Autistic, to participating on the Advisory Board of the Fannie Mae New Jersey Partnership office, the Board of Directors of the Urban League of Hudson County (New Jersey), and even a hometown Board of Education.
Our Newark attorneys' diverse, personal involvement in the community greatly adds to their understanding of the region's political and economic complexities and enhances their ability to anticipate and address specific client matters. Toward this end, the Newark office also conducts briefings and publishes articles on issues and trends of particular importance to our regional clients. Regularly held "breakfast" briefings provide our clients with the opportunity to meet informally with the Newark attorneys and discuss their concerns. Not to be overlooked is the firm's annual golf outing, hosted by the Women's Initiative, where regional clients are able to get better acquainted with our attorneys and network with other professional women in a fun and congenial environment.
